The Great Mogul Diamond by G. P. TaylorThe Book

All was looking so well for a change. Sadie and Saskia Dopple, those difficult twins, had been adopted by the wealthy and recluse writer, Muzz Elliott. And their friend Erik Morrissey Ganger was once and for all becoming a professional PI.

However, when an anonymous note threatens someone they love, the twins are off on an express train to danger. All of a sudden, they find themselves a whirl in a series of crimes—stolen right off the pages of Muzz Elliott’s mystery stories.

The twins must soon find out who’s behind this twisted scheme soon, or Muzz Elliott will be framed for her greatest literary creation; The theft of the Great Mogul Diamond.

At the same time, Erik speeds through the countryside in a remarkably cool car with private investigator Dorcas Potts, racing the clock and attempting to outwit a band of thieves.

At the end of the road, if possible, the three will have to get a hold of the diamond first to save Muzz Elliott. Still, not even this vehicle is fast enough to escape the doubts that annoy Erik’s spirit.

What to do when you are not about right or wrong? Sadie, Saskia, and Erik confront this problem in the third part of The Dopple Ganger Chronicles, by G. P. Taylor, a New York Times bestselling author.

My Review

This work is a very entertaining, easy reading, very well illustrated book, directed to kids up to 12 years old.

The plot is not complicated, and easy to follow:

Writer Muzz Elliot has adopted the twins, Sadie and Saskia. Both of the girls and their friend, Erik, try to help to unravel a mystery case that starts when Muzz Elliot receives an anonymous letter.

The three leave London and travel to Cannes when mysterious crimes begin to occur copycatting the plot of a mystery novel by Muzz Elliott.

Trying to protect the girls and their friend, Erik and private detective, Dorcas Potts, follow them, attempting to reach Cannes earlier than the trio. However, the journey is hazardous for all of them.

Their faith is essential to overcome the wicked and chaotic situations beyond their control that appear during their course.

This book is the third part in a series called "The Dopple Ganger Chronicles", but it can easily stand by itself if you didn't read the previous two books in the chain.

The format of the book being a mix of text, illustration and cartoon style provides a new format for a graphic novel that captivates the attention of the readers and helps them to connect with the heroes of the book.

The brilliant, and breathtaking, cover is a perfect presentation card for a very pleasant overall experience presented by this excellent author.

The publishers were very kind to send me a copy of the graphic novel for an uncompromised analysis through their blogger book review program.
